Lemon Cake

For a long time I had been looking for a really good lemon cake, made from scratch. I finally decided to take a recipe and tweak it to make it good and this one is just that!! 
1 c butter 
2 c sugar 
4 eggs 
3 c plain flour 
2 tsp. baking powder 
1 tsp. salt 
1 c milk 
9 TBS lemon juice (plus extra for the glaze) 
1 TBS  lemon zest
Mix the flour, salt and baking powder and set aside. In another bowl cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the milk and flour alternately to the cream mixture. Then stir in  lemon juice and the zest. Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Mix glaze and spread on top.
Mix 3 c confectionary sugar with 1 tsp. vanilla and enough lemon juice to make it the right consistency. 


  1. Aha!! Here's where you put your lemon zester and squeezer to good use! Well shared, and thanks!

  2. This sounds delicious. I look forward to trying it.

    Have a lovely Christmas season.
